A North State missing persons case is getting national attention from online news site, The Huffington Post.
The Huffington Post this week published an in-depth story that examines the Butte County missing person's case of Neal King.
Twenty-four-year-old Neal Forrest King" was last seen March 26th in Berry Creek. Investigators with the Butte County Sheriff's Office believe he met with foul play.
In the story by Huffington Post reporter David Lohr, King is portrayed as a young man who traveled from Chico to begin a new chapter in his life and ended up operating a large-scale marijuana growing and trafficking operation. He had also amassed as much as 60 acres of property around the county, according to authorities cited in Lohr's story.
The story also spot lights one of King's alleged business associates, Donald Cheatam, whom reportedly traded land for pot and leased land with King.
Cheatham, who is awaiting trial on felony drug and weapons charges, is a person of interest since he was among the last persons to see king the day he disappeared, authorities have said.
